Title: Thermal degradation of fire-retardant -treated wood : predicting residual service life

Author: Winandy, Jerrold E.;

Date: 2001

Source: Forest products journal. Vol. 51, no. 2 (Feb. 2001).:p. 47-54.

Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication

Description: This paper presents a review of more than 10 years of research on the effects of fire-retardant treatments on wood properties and the potential of these treatments for in-service degradation when exposed to elevated temperatures. It presents an in-depth discussion of the findings and implications of a major wood engineering research program to assess the current condition, extend service life, and predict residual serviceability of fire-retardant-treated plywood when used as structural roof sheathing.

Keywords: Wood preservation, Plywood, Fire retardants. , Thermal degradation, Prediction, Temperature
